So Heather, she can't talk to her friends because she's afraid that they will judge her for still loving Nick, and everywhere she turns, she gets the same advice: Leave him. And if the situation were reversed, Nick would be in the same situation. So if we can divorce, why do we still have affairs?
But who knows what's really going on under the sheets there, right?
Because when it comes to sex, the pressure for men is to boast and to exaggerate, but the pressure for women is to hide, minimize and deny, which isn't surprising when you consider that there are still nine countries where women can be killed for straying. But now we marry, and we stop having sex with others.
And I am it: I'm chosen, I'm unique, I'm indispensable, I'm irreplaceable, I'm the one. The vivid details of Nick's two-year affair unfold in front of her in real time, And it made me think: Affairs in the digital age are death by a thousand cuts.
But then we have another paradox that we're dealing with these days.
Is it a hookup, a love story, paid sex, a chat room, a massage with a happy ending?
